GRMS Presents Oliver! Jr. March 23-25

Lionel Bart’s Oliver sets to music the classic Charles Dickens' tale ‘Oliver Twist’. It tells the story of an orphaned boy named Oliver who  experiences many trials in life before discovering his true heritage. His journey involves orphanage life, hunger, pickpockets, and caring adults. Oliver Jr. (a condensed version of Oliver)  is filled with the same memorable music, such as ‘Consider Yourself’, ‘Food Glorious Food’, ‘Oom Pah Pah’, ‘As Long As He Needs Me’ and others. This musical features comical and dramatic acting and valuable life lessons. Oliver! was the first musical adaptation of a famous Charles Dickens work to become a stage hit.

Oliver Junior will be performed by Gillette Road Middle School’s Theater Department and features over 100 students and adults. The show will be running March 23rd, 24th and 25th at 7pm in the school’s auditorium - 6150 South Bay Road Cicero, NY 13039. Tickets are $6 presale and $8 at the door. They may be purchased at the school Monday through Friday from 10:30 -1pm. Ticket forms are available online at:  Oliver Jr. Tickets

For questions or orders contact Linda Hurn at or call 315-218-3000 during school hours 8:15-4:00 pm Monday through Friday.
